I have not listened to this in ages, in anyway shape or form, so I don't know if
the drums were cut or not. I know Jeff was the kind of guy that if the tape ran
out he'd skip them. The Terrapin jam is here and then pickups pretty much with
I Will Take You Home.
This was the last show I ever attended. It was the only one of the
whole Cap Centre run that I saw.
Set 1 is prime....Sugaree DEFINITELY owns the weight of this set - everything else kind of flies in its wake. I don't know why the crowd deems it necessary to howl approval after every single blooming line of Tom Thumb's Blues...this is a case where a sbd really is a better go.
Set 2 - The Terrapin here, with the so-called Mock Turtle Jam (read "Alice in Wonderland", yo) is absolutely as epic in scope and scale as you think - supreme Event Music.
Wharf Rat. Wow, jesus - if you ever are getting fatigued by the sheer number of times you've heard it, dust it off with this one - THIS is the rat come to life. Even Throwing Stones gets in on the action - what a buildup to the jam!
Alas, Revolution can't keep the air in the balloon - Jerry often had trouble with that one. But by that time we've had our brain washed, tumble-dried, and polished to a high sheen - you'll be left more than satisfied when NFA fades on out.
Subject: Top AUD, All-Time Great Show
March 1990 featured 13 shows, the worst of which probably rates about 7.5-8/10, while the top shows are slam dunk 10/10. To my ears, at least 7 of March 90's shows are a 9/10, and this is definitely one of them. It may be just a sliver beneath 3/24 and 3/29, but it is still an absolute must hear.
Subject: Incredible, sick, awesome! Seven stars at least!
